what's here? #

here i will documentate the building of my vardo in india.

background: i like to buy a small plot in sadri and to build a small house on it. since this could be take longer (the buying!) i have the idea of build a home on wheel. makes me more flexible. when finish, i go ask a farmer if i can put my vardo somewhere on his land. if there trouble coming, just move further :) and after for living with the nomadic camel herder such a house could also be interesting.

what is a vardo? #

vardos are the romani wagon (wikipedia) called. a home on wheel. bauwagen oder zirkuswagen in german. but i do not like the term caravan, since this kind of vehicle mostly looking very ugly. so therefore my vardo will look nice :)

some pics?
